    Drive by Wire Lag?

    Just test drove Kawi 15F and Yamaha GP1800.

    Felt like hole shot was better on Kawi.

    Is this a drive by wire vs mechanical wire difference?

    No idea, but I'm still getting used to the electronic throttle on my car, vs a cable drive. Mostly because I'm driving a manual. Nobody else understands what I'm complaining about.

    Re: Drive by Wire Lag?

    Im very used to driving mildly built smallblocks with Holley carbs. In fact, my daily driver for the last 16 years is a smallblock powered 1988 S10 Blazer 2wd. Trust me.....I know what youre talking about. I cant stand the lag. A lot of the newer auto transmissions also have a horrible lag when going reverse back into drive........it makes me so mad!
